Default Quick and Easy Shipping Tips

So over the past 2 days I have probably shipped over 50 individual graded cards.

I have come up with a pretty simple, cost effective way to professionally send these via first class. I tested with about 30 over the past 2 months doing the same thing to make sure all was well and it works!

Anyways here is what you will need...

Small Bubble Mailer for DVD's (10-15 cents if purchases in bulk)
Cardboard for vinyl records (30 cents each if purchased in bulk or FREE if you save materials that you receive from other orders)
Larger Bubble Mailers (approx 11X14ish which run 30 cents in bulk)

Keep in mind you do not need to use each material per order, as it varies. For smaller valued cards ($50 and under) I use technique #1. for all others I use Technique #2.

TECHNIQUE 1:

This technique costs approximately 10-15 cents in shipping supplies and works like a charm!

Step 1: Grab your Small DVD bubble Mailer




Step 2: Slide your graded card into the Bubble Mailer like this...




Step 3: Make sure the card reaches the bottom like so....




Step 4: Fold Up like this....




Step 5: Remove the Protective Strip and fold the top part down like this..







Step 6: Apply your shipping label and wala!







TECHNIQUE #2:

This is what I use for more expensive cards.. Costs approx 75 cents in supplies. (worth it)

Very similar the first technique, except this introduces a the Cardboard and larger bubble mailer as well.

Step #1: Repeat Technique #1 minus the shipping label part.

Step #2: Grab a a piece of card board like so like so...




Step #3: Lay the package from Technique 1 and play it at the bottom of the cardboard...




Step #4: Fold the cardboard in half over the bubble mailer like so..




Step #5: Slide the cardboard into the larger bubble mailer like...







Step 6: Seal the envelope and add the label like technique 1 and wala!!!



Hopefully this bootleg picture tutorial saves some of you some headaches!!!


Good Luck!

Thanks for the tip.

I use 400 count BCW boxes for graded cards. You can ship up to 9 in a box.

Just had the pleasure of opening up one of these packages today and it was impressive how protected the card was, but still being easy to open. And then the sweet reward of what was inside. Thanks!
